Forbes: Why Big Government Is Waging War Against Cash

Insty: Cash is the currency of freedom

The goal is destruction of System D, and thus enslavement of all where that goal is achieved.


Burn them alive at the stake.

Every one.

  1. You cannot destroy system D. It doesn’t necessarily have to operate around currency. Barter works very well and you’d be surprised how many merchants and contractors are willing to use it. My dad belonged to MTA(Metro Trade Assoc)in Detroit back in the 70’s. MTA had members in every line of business.

  2. “The goal is destruction of System D, and thus enslavement of all where that goal is achieved.”

    I’ll say it again, Star Wars like if you wish, “Yesssss, there is another….”. So long as there are alternative systems, and there are, the central banks cannot be certain to ‘win’. You see, once you break the back of the comfort level Americans have had using USD greenbacks for a century and a half all sorts of alternative visions can pop into their heads. The central banks themselves would be breaking that hold on the relationship of the populace and the dollar.

    Look at our own history, we have had multiple currencies used by Americans. We will have another one again thanks to Texas. Banning cash does not bode well for them. The central banks are projecting in their own limited bubble that will not work out as intended.

    As to SystemD, much of its transaction value is performed in barter at the local level with little to trace. Only once the trades are aggregated at the dealer level or higher would there be traceable amount of transactions to track. And of course most all of the Chinese workshops making the stuff the SystemD sells accept BTC in exchange. Hard to guess but I would suggest that a sizable amount of SystemD is already cashless, hence untraceable.

  3. “Burn them alive at the stake.”

    Naaah, that’s way too quick for ’em. I advocate crucifixion. Not using an actual cross, of course – that would be inappropriate symbolism. But definitely to employ the hang by spikes through wrists motif.

    I can – with some effort – abide those who are unable to abandon the chimera of the “limited” State. But could the “limited” statists at least acknowledge that limitation will be greatly facilitated by eradicating the notion that provision of money must be under State monopoly control?

  4. I reckon that this is one reason why they need taxation.

    Sure, they could just print all the money …. but, taxation ties you into their currency. If you have to pay taxes, then you simply have to work within their system, so as to acquire the FRNs.

    It will be difficult to live a life of barter when your every purchase attracts taxation.

    Once you are trading in their currency, you can be exploited, via inflation.

    • SemperFi, 0321

      Most folks haven’t a clue a FRN is nothing more than an IOU note for the IRS, taken in trade for your tax debt. You work your ass off only to be paid in fake money from the company store, and only redeemable at the company store.
      Federal Reserve Note= monopoly money issued by Federal Reserve Bank in place of US silver coins, a legal dollar being 371 grains of silver.

  5. It isn’t a war on cash. It’s a war on us.

  6. Tangibles, people, tangibles! Possession being 9/10ths and all.

    Move value (not to be confused with fiat “money”) to the People’s side of the ledger however possible.

    All this “mark” talk is very interesting. It will not be biometrics (attributes of His image), it will be of the beast and everyone will knowingly take it or refuse it. Likely our Steve Centanni moment. Of course, there’s always option C.

  7. Government is salivating at the idea of electronic money. Much easier to track the movements of the serfs. The powers that be will be more than happy to “interview” a serf that strays to far from home by means other than air travel.

    Electronic money also eliminates the idea of internal passports.

    Someone out of bounds for no apparent reason? All of a sudden, no funds and a visit from a state sanctioned goon.

    Tangibles are like anything else in the coming age of the ubiquitous Fascist/Progressive tyranny–they will simply be seized and given to someone of the “right” mix. If you own a registered firearm, have posted to certain blogs, voiced your opinion, spoken your opinion openly on the phone or via email/text, contributed to the wrong organizations (which include any Christian charity or cause or church), you will simply be rounded up. You will go first. You will be slaughtered. No point trying to reeducate white male Christians. I am a prime target, and I accept that. But they ultimately will lose, as Christ will come again.

    • So I take it your giving up then…Christ never gave up…

      • I don’t see an attitude of giving up (hopelessness) in the comment. I see one of ultimate hope. That no matter what occurs here in this world as we struggle, there is eternal hope, ultimate freedom and perfect justice in Christ.

        There is no point in trying to “re-educate” me, a white male Christian. I will not be re-educated. The world will do what it must as the world moves along the course set for it by Adam and the god of this world in Genesis 3. I too will do what I must, but if I am killed, so be it. This is not a hopeless attitude. It is realistic.

        Matthew 10:28… “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

        In fact, this body must perish or be miraculously altered if I am to move to the heavenly places destined for me (1 Cor 15:35-58).

        God may decide to end the dispensation of grace and peace we find ourselves in and take His church home before I am killed. Great for me, not so much for the world. One thing is sure, this dispensation must come to an end before the mark of the beast is made manifest. Grace and wrath are simultaneously incompatible. The mark appears during a period of great wrath. During that time the vast majority of people on the planet will beg the anti-christ (whom they believe to be God) for that mark so they can buy, sell and eat.

        If only Miss Barnhardt knew the full extant and meaning of the verse she quotes in Galatians 5:1. Like most, she mis-uses it to make the point she wants to make, rather than allowing the verse to say what it says and mean what it says. It denotes ultimate liberty from the law; yet she, being a catholic, places herself under the law willingly. Sad and strange.

        Gal 2:16… “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith OF Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith OF Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

        Gal 2:21… “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.”

          Very well stated sir … and very true.

        • Maybe I took it wrong I just see to many people using Christ as excuse not to do anything about their situation… They don’t prep because they say God will take care of me, they don’t own firearms because they say God will protect me, etc so I ask them why do they work, why do they do anything if God is going to take care of it for them…Shoot why even breathe with that attitude…

          • lineman you bring up an excellent point. Many people wrongly use Christ as an “excuse” and here (I believe) is why. They do not know how to rightly divide their Bibles. When churches teach the doctrine found in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (and the vast majority do) they face a problem. They need to reinterpret, or flat out ignore many verses which are literally impossible to follow. For example, using the point you make, why indeed should I prepare for anything when I can believe what Jesus says and follow:

            Matthew 6:25-34… “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

            Indeed, if I am a “follower of Christ” (as Ann Barnhardt claims to be) should God not provide for my every need? Did God not provide manna for the Israelites as they wandered the desert? Clothing as well? Why is Ann, as devoted to her religion as she is, as destitute as she claims to be, if God will do what He says He will do? Something’s very wrong…

            Here is the short of it (hard as it may be for so many to accept). Jesus Christ was not speaking to believers today in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Nor are the Hebrew epistles directed at us. He Himself says:

            Matthew 15:24… “But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

            Paul confirms:

            Romans 15:8… “Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:”

            The fathers are the fathers of the Jews… Abraham, Isaac, Jacob. They are not the fathers of the Gentile nations, they are the fathers of Israel. God called Abraham out of this mess of humanity before there ever was an Israel. He called Israel to be the channel of blessing from God to the Gentile nations. Epic fail Israel. Omnipotent God foresaw the problem. He called Paul as one “out of due time”.

            Paul is the Apostle of the Gentiles, not Peter, James and John. Christ called the twelve were for Israel. Christ called Paul for us.

            Gal 1:11-12… “But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

            Romans 15:15-16… “Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.”

            Believers today are to “follow Christ” as Paul followed Christ, not as the twelve did.

            1 Cor 11:1… “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.”

            Paul instructs us thusly (in direct opposition to what Christ instructed):

            2 Thes 3:10-12… “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.”

            1 Thes 4:11-12… “And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.”

            Paul says work and prepare for your future! Why?

            Eph 5:14-17… “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”

            The will of the Lord for all men today simply, is that all men get saved and then to come to the knowledge of the truth as given to Paul.

            1 Tim 2:1-4… “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”

            Most people no longer understand the very simple rule of right division. Everyone divides the Bible somewhere. Most, but not all, between the new and old testaments… the new being “for us” and the old being “for them”. This is incorrect. Both testaments/covenants were/are for the house of Israel and the house of Judah (KJB – Jer 31:31, Heb 8). The Bible must be divided between that which was prophesied since the world began…

            Acts 3:21… “Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.”

            …and that which was kept secret since the world began! Things that are different (something spoken, something hidden) cannot be the same.

            Col 1:25-26… “Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God; Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:”

            1 Cor 2:7… “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:”

            Romans 16:25-27… “Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.”

            A pastors function in this day and age is to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery given to Paul. It is not to preach Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as doctrine for today. Unfortunately, most people are taught the wrong doctrine so it is understandable why they fail to prepare. They are under the false understanding that God will take care of them.

            How incredibly sad, no? If people would only study very carefully the book of Romans so much confusion would be abated. Romans is written directly to believers today as are all of Paul’s epistles. 95% of the Bible is prophetic information about Israel and their relationship to the Gentile nations. 5% is about NEITHER Jew nor Gentile, but the unprophesied (mystery) body of Christ. God redeems the earth back to Himself via Israel as Israel is all about the land; He redeems the heavens back to Himself via the body of Christ. We “go to” heaven. Heaven “comes to” the Jews in the form of the new Jerusalem!

            When once recognized, right division is the absolute key which unlocks the entirety of scripture to our complete understanding. One does not need to be a scholar, one simply needs to believe that the words on the pages of the King James Bible say what they say and mean what they say.

            I apologize for the length of my posts… there is so much to say. Thanks to CA for his indulgence of me. Would love to discuss further if you have interest. Meet me here…


            What mystery indeed!!!

    • I don’t know why people write defeatist comments like this that eliminate options/strategies.

      Of course they will try to seize what value exists on our side of the ledger. So would you want to make that easy for them (fiat “money”) or hard (tangibles)?

      If you have tangibles they have to come to you. They have to be willing to demonstrate who and what they are. They must put force behind their goals and the men who come must be prepared to die. You get to decide if you want to fight for what is yours/survive. If you want to roll over (and I suspect you would) you would have that choice.

      If you have 1s and 0s in a “bank” account, it can be taken with a few keystrokes. This offers you no choices. Most people would protest and show up promptly for work the next day.

      Why is this hard to understand?

      If you have four figures or more in a “bank” and not enough food to feed you and yours for at least six months+, you are a fool. Same for necessary medications, ammo, etc…

        You sound like my wife. She calls me a pessimist because I explain to her the things of which I am aware. She thinks that I am negative. She thinks I am a defeatist. But as others have pointed out, and as I point out to her, I think of myself as the ultimate optimist. I believe in Mercy, Grace, and Salvation. I believe in Christ’s victory. I believe in Eternal LIfe. I am so full of hope and joy that it is unfathomable in human conceptuality.

    Sooo, when can we begin? The “burning them alive” part of the post. Yeah I get it. Barter, tools, skills, seeds, tobacco, liquor, ammo, old silver coin of the Republic, cottage industries such as seamstress, shoe repair, mechanic, farmer. Are not trucks like stage coaches of the old West? Let me know when to start the bonfire.

  10. Let’s see…
    No more Craigslist to sell your tires and rims your fucked up F150 with the frozen pistons, or your single wide the cousin left you.
    A corollary of that is that everyone pays state/fed tax on every transaction.
    A second corollary is that barter occurs.
    No more fed ex and global priority mail going to south america and all parts east with cash.
    No more working off the books; illegals; your uncle; no one. Everyone gets audited in milliseconds-taxes stream in immediately; they spend more.
    No one escapes…that is to say both the drug cartels and bank cartels are immediately exposed. All illicit deals with cash stop.
    Fill in the list. Include politicians. Include gangstas.

    See where I’m going here?
    Snowball. Chance. In. Hell.

  11. As a Contractor, I barter like the shit has already hit the fan.. I also lean heavily on cash,but only After i have sufficient above-board monies in my account to cover business expenses. The average homeowner is chomping at the bit to save money by paying in cash,or trading off the Ex-husbands tools and toys that were won in the divorce and as a contractor, I am more than willing to accommodate them.I’v sat in thousands of livingrooms and kitchen tables over 20 yrs, The public will never sit by and allow E money to dictate their lives.. People you would otherwise think were sheep, are the craftiest… The one thing i have noticed.. people never want to trade their guns or ammo..

  12. don’t worry The Sky God will save us

  13. I keep saying (since the early 1980’s), ‘follow the money’. If you can’t, or it is obscure, it is for a reason. There are great plans out there and those who play within those plans and you (and me) are not part of that – the final ‘push’ is coming and your (and my) ‘push back’ may not be enough to sustain. Do not ever think that what is happening around you (at least on a national/global level) is not well thought out and pre-planned. Standing alone or in small ‘tribes’ or groups will not cut it – my solution? I don’t have one but at least I see it coming ……………

    • Why stand alone or in small tribes…Why not be building from those into something greater…Lots of defeatest attitudes around here…Sad That…

  14. The Usual Suspect

    These stupid fucks, they push American’s into a corner with nothing
    left to lose, then they will cry like the GOP, who are also stupid.

  15. The giant no lube jailhouse ass-rape is taking place now in DC . The elite don’t know whether to shit or go blind.
    Trading,bartering,sharing and giving going on elsewhere.

    The people that live their faith will prevail.
    The posers and wankers will soon be exposed for the soul-less, empty meat sacks that they are.
    Live each day to the fullest and keep your sense of humor.

  16. Burn them alive at the stake? Naw. Too quick. Wet crucifixion. Normal crucifixion is three days of agony ended by death by dehydration. In wet crucifixion you give the condemned water, so that they die of hunger after a much longer period of agony.

  17. outlawpatriot

    Mmm… pretty sure barter can only go so far. Some sort of specie is required. Barter proved to have it’s limits in the 18th century. Hard to imagine it as the only gig in a more modern society. 🙂

  18. I read all three “War on cash” articles you linked. I see a lot of citations of preferences and desires. I see none whatsoever regarding concrete measures to make those preferences reality.

  19. Alfred E. Neuman

    Reblogged this on MCS.

  20. Utah legislature made gold and silver legal tender a couple years ago, which nicely complements barter, imho. I’ve heard other states are considering the same thing. Works for me…
